    That doesn't look like a 10" tablet. I'd say 7 or 8" at most.

    I didn't think so either, but I just held my hand + surface at the same angle. Looks the same.

    IMO the only way RT will sell is a very cheap price. It is very none Nokia to go for cheap price on a launch like this, but there possibly being no camera there do hint that maybe we are looking at ~299 euros tablet here.

    I'm still surprised Nokia is getting into the RT market. It was a good move for them to hold off until now however. Let everyone else take the initial losses and get out of that space (IE: Asus). They can now jump in and start building up the platform like their doing with WP.

    If they play it right RT could be a good product for them. I'm thinking matching Lumia phone + tablet. I think its something the ladies would like.

    I'll be very interested to see what they come up with. My concerns aren't so much with the app selection (or restriction) but the performance. Even with all the updates, the Surface RT is a pretty poor performer for all but the most basic tasks. I was at my parent's house this weekend and tried to play Hydro Thunder; what a disaster. To be honest, if it can't play any game, or run any app, available in the MS app store, it's a failure in my opinion. I don't expect it to play the latest PC games, but everything in the app store is a must. Maybe the new Snapdragon 800 is a vast improvement. I'm definitely encouraged by the 4g connectivity.

    why would you be surprised at this, RT is the future of mobile devices from MS, phones and tablets, is good Nokia getting into it now with testing hardware and software because afterall soon this will be the same OS that is on WP

    C'MON media device manufacturers, start making these entry level media CONSUMPTION devices with a base onboard storage of 128GB. Honestly, the clouds a great idea in a world where Carriers are not making you bend over without lube with overage charges. Yeah, let's have people stream movies and high data features instead of giving them a decent amount of storage so that said device can be used properly.

    Yes, some people are quite happy with only 16GB useable storage.

    It seems like a pretty obvious fake, right down to the unnecessarily grainy images and the choice of angles designed to obscure any actual detail. It is not even the proper VZW logo.

    I was actually about to go pick up a surface RT, but stopped once I saw this. I would LOVE a Nokia tablet running Windows RT! I sold my Galaxy Tab2, because at the end of the day it was just an oversized android phone. I don't understand all the hate towards RT. it's years beyond iOS and Android's tablet iterations. USB, Native printer support, and FULL OFFICE.
    I just really hope this tablet comes with microsd expansion. Storage is a huge limitation on todays devices.

    How do people feel about the bright colours? Personally i'd love red as it'd go well with my 920. :)

    10" is kind of big form factor for a tablet today! 8" inch is the right size! Nokia should of learn from sales of Samsung, Nexus and iPad Minis. More then 65% are under 8"!

    Not when you plan on using the Snap feature half of the time and you also rely on the Office Suite.

    Which is exactly my use case once I get one.

    Especially when you consider Windows RT takes 16GB out of the box. 64GB is the minimum storage for an RT device. If this is 32GB, that's a huge FAIL on Nokia.

    I hope that this doesn't happen. RT needs to just die off already, it's a colossal failure. They should be focusing on Atom tablets for the low-end. Pushing x86 compatibility IS the answer to making Windows tablets attractive alternatives to iOS and Android ones.

    What makes an Atom tablet a better option for iPad-type things than an RT tablet?

    Because Gen 1 was a colossal failure and Microsoft should just quit after Gen 1 fails. Quit early and often is the FUD motto!

    Hehe.

    But I'm serious. It isn't even like Bay Trail is really going to be smashing ARM like we thought it would. There is, literally, no reason for RT to die off. We just need a bigger push from Microsoft for people to port over their programs. Also, we need more powerful API.

    I recently got a Surface RT, find it useful in ways my iPad is not - Office, file management, the ability to play different kinds of video files, a familiar OS, for example - so can certainly see a place for it in the tablet world.

    Bear in mind too that it is more featured than a device like the Kindle Fire HD, which is only 50 cheaper than RT currently. My boss bought one to actually use as a mobile work device and can't even sign into one of our office networks on it because it doesn't allow proxy servers - a Surface RT would be much more suited to his needs.

    Nokia entering the RT arena is a great thing in my book. We can agree the hardware will be good but competitively priced - see what they've done with the Lumia 520. Like Windows Phone, Windows 8 is slightly lacking in apps, and I think they could adopt a similar strategy in Windows 8 to that which they've had in Windows Phone - striking deals and bringing companies' apps to Windows 8, which will benefit the Windows 8 eco system as a whole and not just Windows RT.

    Windows RT has a lot of potential. It's not going to replace full Windows anytime soon (and isn't intended to right now) but Skydrive in 8.1 shows the potential of the OS having a Modern app that also integrates well with the Desktop, and I think Nokia could become a champion for encouraging developers to create this kind of app.

    Perhaps Nokia has figured out how to run Windows Phone apps on Windows RT - this would instantly expand the app store, and give users more options. I am also hoping that it supports miracast, because I don't think the final 8.1 on Surface RT will allow it, which means I will be selling mine as soon as the RT2 comes out. I will wait to see what Surface 2 will be, then decide on that or the Nokia.

    I disagree strongly.
    RT needs to mature, not die. It's perfect for tablets. With maturity it could
    be an excellent laptop/desktop OS as well. Also with maturity, we'll get much
    better app support, a number of devices to run it on, and prices more on par with
    midrange Android tablets than entry level laptops.
